We made the short drive to Zomba where the weather was much cooler. We did a half day hike on Zomba Plateau. The hike had great views over the valley. Unfortunately, we got very ill that night and did not get to enjoy a great Italian dinner at our hotel Casa ...

Worth bearing in mind the GDP per Capita (proxy for net worth of the entire country per citizen) is 900 usd. And secondary schools can be far away from where kids live, so boarding school might be necessary. As a result, 30yr old adults take night school to finish up their secondary education. It was also a bit sobering to know that ...
